 General Description:

The literary writer and Professor of English Thomas Howard reveals his unique writing gifts and original insights as a young married man reflecting on the amazing variety of experiences he had during his years living in New York City.

Howard presents an enthusiastic response on the part of a new, young husband to the great, twinkling kaleidoscope of New York, playing off the thousand diversions offered by that incredible city (opera, ballet, dining, sports, social life, etc.) against an increasingly strong awareness that the hidden mysteries of domestic fidelity, marriage, fatherhood, and routine duties, are at the "center" around which New York life whirls. This is a timely book about the unique mixture of human and spiritual experiences that make up life in a great, complex city and the confrontation of tensions that are timeless and ubiquitous.

"What was borne upon me under the kaleidoscopic species of that city was of a piece with what T. S. Eliot called 'the Permanent Things'"
-Thomas Howard

"I often think that Saint Augustine might have had a mystical insight into places like New York, or perhaps it was just his experience with ancient Rome, when he wrote that the City of God and the City of Man are 'inextricably intertwined' until end of the world. Tom Howard speaks for many when he sees this so clearly realized on the sidewalks of New York."
-Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, C. A R., Author, Arise from Darkness
